Boston Amputation Injury Attorneys
The loss of a limb is obviously an incredibly significant and dramatic injury. Because the injury is so severe, it is very difficult to put a price on the physical and psychological impact involved. The difficult nature of valuing these cases makes it extremely important for victims to consult an experienced injury attorney that can guide them through their personal injury claim. In the event a victim, or victim’s loved one settles a claim with the insurance company directly, it is possible they could leave hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars on the table.
Those affected by an amputation or loss of limb injury may not be able to work and will incur costly medical expenses. In addition to extensive and long-term rehabilitation, victims of amputation injuries will likely need a prosthetic device, which are very expensive. If you have been victimized by another’s negligence and have suffered an injury that has affected the use of your arms or legs, you will need an attorney that can recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
If you have been in a car accident, suffered a slip and fall, or been involved in a workplace injury and have lost a limb, you will likely experience chronic and sometimes debilitating phantom limb pain..
